Right to Work Opponents Go to State Supreme Court

Right to Work Opponents Go to State Supreme Court

State employee unions are taking on the state's right-to-work law, or at least part of it.

Labor unions are asking the Michigan Supreme Court to review last month's Court of Appeals opinion that said state employees are governed by the law, which was approved by the legislature late last year and then signed by the Governor.

Mel Grieshaber of the Michigan Corrections Organization, which represents corrections officers, argues that the Michigan Constitution states that the state Civil Service Commission, has authority over state workers.

He says he hopes the Supreme Court will act swiftly to take up the case.

The law's passage in late 2012 drew protests in Lansing (pictured).
